Turning two!

Holy cupcakes, batman! The blog is two today! How time flies!



I seriously appreciate this blog and all the blessings it comes with. I've made an amazing group of bloggy friends, whose knowledge on all things (crafty and non-crafty) is mind boggling and awe-worthy.

I've learned so much from reading your blogs, your tutorials, and your tips. Venturing into new crafts, like knitting and sewing, didn't seem so scary because I knew there was a whole group of supportive peeps to lend a hand. Or an ear when a project blew up in my face and I needed to vent.

You guys seriously rock, so I want to say thanks for listening to me babble (usually with bad grammar...sorry Mary!) for the last two years. You've saved me so much in therapy bills, haha!

So as a small token of my appreciation, I'm having a teensy blogiversary giveaway! Its another Potato Chip Scarf (you can't make just one, heh).



Its made with Moonlight Mohair and is really soft and girly. This second picture gives you a better idea of the color and the how the yarn sparkles.

Click the pic to get the full effect.
The sidebar needs some cleaning up and I want to add new blogs that are must-reads, crafty or not. I love to click on sidebar blogs and find new people that I might have otherwise never been exposed to. So tell me what one of your favorite blogs is!

Since its a small giveaway, I'll only leave it open for 24 hours. I'll pick the winner tomorrow via Random Generator when I get home from work. If you don't have a blog, please leave an email addy that I can contact you at.
**I would have liked to give away something bigger, but my crafting time has been seriously limited lately. I'm hoping that as soon as I get adjusted to my new travel schedule (aka less exhausted), I'll get my mojo back.

Attic24 is a fun place to visit. I believe it's typepad (or wordpress)! I'll check tomorrow. Put my name in at the random number generator! Congratulations on two years!

Happy two year blogiversary, Christina! I've really enjoyed reading your blog too, and getting to know you through it.

I greatly admire your crafty skills - I have a long way to go before I'm as good at crocheting as you, and I still haven't attemped to learn how to sew.

And of course, I'm still jealous of your pretty hair - you have what I used to call my daughter's hair when she was a toddler - "boing boing curls" (because her curls would "boing" back into shape when I'd stretch them out. They've gotten kinkier as she's gotten older, and they won't "boing" anymore)!

Check out Yarns & Musings some time - I think you'd like it!

I love the scarf - please enter me in the giveaway!

One of my fav blogs is not a crafty one: howtoeatacupcake.net. Cupcake recipes up the wazoo. :)

I'm late, but I wanted to wish you a Happy 2nd Blogiversary! You are an awesome crafter. I'm still in aww over the crochet Noah's Ark blanket you did a while back. And you've picked up sewing like a pro! Hope the 3rd year of crafting and blogging brings you much joy.

My favorite blogs are sewing blogs. They inspire me to one day sew for myself and to think outside the box.
